Explorer cannot open messages

  Papa Goose 19:49 28 Aug 2008

Hi folks,

Over the last week I have been having trouble with explorer. It will come up with a box message in the middle of the screen saying explorer cannot open the page, and on some occassion explorer shuts down.

Something else that has started to happen over the last few days, is when explorer is opened or new tabs are opened the screen will be minimised.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

What version of IE? Windows? Anti-virus? Anti Spyware & Malware?

Are you not able to access the Net at-all, as a result?

Hi wee eddie, Thanks for taking the time to help.

IE7, Vista home premium, Nortons 360. Net access is no probs, Skype

It's been working OK for the last 4 months since I bought the latop.

in IE to Others,

but I reckon that something has become corrupted there and you may need to re-configure (In non-geek language) get the right words in the right places within IE.

Is there somewhere I can get a list of the settings. I've been on th MS website, and that was as much use as 't1t's on a goldfish'

Any updates missing? This will tell you which ones will (possibly) fix the problem:

Forgot to say; better leave the registry well alone, though.

Hi provider,

Went to the link and nothing there seems to be what I'm experiencing.....or actually makes any sense to me :-(

Windows update says everything is upto date?
